According to a Nashville Police press release, Shaun White was charged with vandalism and public intoxication following a chain of overnight events early Sunday morning at Loews Vanderbilt.
The media release goes on to state, "Officers responded to the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel at 2 a.m. Sunday after a man identified as the 26-year-old White pulled a fire alarm, forcing the hotel to evacuate all guests. An employee also reported seeing White destroy a hotel phone."
The police report said White tried to take off in a cab but someone stopped the cab from leaving and told the driver he was calling police.
"When White overheard their conversation, he allegedly kicked the citizen and fled on foot. The citizen reported that he chased White until White turned and ran into him apparently causing White to fall backwards and strike his head against a fence," stated the Nashville Police Department in the media release.
White was treated and released from a local hospital then arrested on Monday. According to ESPN, "White was released by police late Monday afternoon on his own recognizance. His court date was set for Oct. 10."
The North County Times said the long-time Carlsbad resident currently resides in Rancho Santa Fe.
